Ok, so I scored some european spec tail lights and sockets, but I'm sure they wont just simply plug in...so, what do I do? The sockets for the euro tails, what do I use for bulbs? I assume the brake/ parking light gets a 315 or similar dual filament light, and the turn looks like a std. blub with double contacts on bottom.

Anyone have any info on how I go about wiring these up? I'm ready to rock out with some euro-hotness.

Thanks!

If I'm not mistaken you have to seperate the brake and turn signal wire at the loom where it comes out of the ECU. I recall there having been a how-to posted about this and they said that you can't just cut the wires at the back.

Ok, wiring - non issue, but how the F do you plug them in...are people using the US Spec sockets in the euro tails, or the euro sockets? What about pig-tails for the sockets?

Help.
